This party is all business—just like a bulletproof tiger.
Roll out of bed, race up the canyon with your Lib Tech 1986 Snow Mullet BTX snowboard, and pop around on your banana’s Morning Wood before all the powder’s gone. Magne-Traction edges magically transform the misery of riding crud to sheer joy as the Banana Tech rocker in between your boots takes you the rest of the way to pleasure town. Whether you ride Lib Tech’s tribute to a mythical hairstyle in the deeps where it shines like Soul Glo, or find yourself on a groomer heading back to the lift, the Mullet has the party favors you need to get there in style.
- Magne-Traction edges turn ice into powder
- Banana Technology rocker between the bindings for a controlled, surfy ride
- Morning Wood core is stiff and packs serious pop
- TNT Base rides super fast and doesn�t need a lot of maintenance

Freerider's dream board
Rode the board in powder and this board just plain kills it. On groomers it was tough at first. The board kept washing out and I remember reading other people complaining of the same thing. So I moved the bindings all the way back and now it carves like a knife. This board is so easy to maneuver. I took it to the mogul field to see how well it handled and that was the easiest time I've ever had riding moguls. This may not be the best freestyle board but if freeriding is your thing, do yourself a favor and check this board out.
I can't decide between the 165 or 172. I'm...
I can't decide between the 165 or 172. I'm 6' 3" and weigh 230 so that leans me towards the 172 but I live on the east coast so most of the free ride stuff I do is pretty tight and a shorter board would be appreciated. Does anyone have any advice?
Yeah bro, I am 6', 230 and I ride DC PBJ 160 for freestyle and all mountain. I also ride a 157 on park days. I'd stick to a 165 for the East Coast scene. I rode Wisp and Snowshoe out there and I had a 160 Lib-Tech Youth in Asia. It was a great board for those mountains. Hope this helps, board safe brother!
Hi I was just wondering if you had a 1986...
Hi I was just wondering if you had a 1986 snow mullet in stock in a 156cm or if u know of a shop that does!
No, that size is sold out for this model from the 2009-2010 year, For 2011, we are still awaiting shipment. Keeps your eyes peeled, it will sell out fast.
When i was searching dogfunk. for a board to replace my Nitro Pantera the Mullet looked like all i wanted in the one board and i wasn't let down.
A powder shape that rode well in all conditions. This board comes into its own on chopped powder and rode as smooth and silk in the fresh.
The wide nose grabbed a little on the steep groomers but that only provoked aggressive riding and made me enjoy a beer at the end of the day even more.
As usual the magna traction is top notch. This board carves like crazy, whether its groomers, ice or chop!!
I was not that impressed with the reverse camber. I am on the 172 and i think the board floats so well with the big nose and narrow tail with the setback stance that it does not make a huge difference. The board rides loose, which is not a bad thing once you get use to it.
The 172 rides much smaller than what you would think. When i ordered the 172 i thought i would rarely ride it but it's my everyday board now!!
I can still ride switch even in powder but I don't dare try and land switch in deep snow.
The board i was riding before the 172 was a two year old lib tech powder mullet without the reverse camber but had the magna traction.
I was suprised to read a review that claimed it was not that stiff and more of a powder board.
I have been riding 20 years and this thing holds an edge in chop and and bumps like no other.
I was riding a lib tech dark series that is insanely stiff and it got nervous at high speeds but the mullet does not.
I usually only ride powder and i have no desire to ride anything but the mullet.
Fear the Mullet
Thanks, Lib Tech!
I bought the Lib Tech Snow Mullet 165 with magne-traction last year at the end of the season, and pulled it out this year at Kirkwood, CA. Just love it! Nice deep powder board. This is my first banana, or reverse camber. Right at first, it feels a lot different, buttery to be exact. I did expect it to be that way, but then you make great friends with this feature right away. Even a relatively long deck for me, (5'11", 145 pounds) even though I always have liked longer decks, turned like a sports car because of the magne traction, and the reverse camber. It really stays up in powder, but surprisingly was very easy to get used to, and in all conditions, even groomers and ice unlike what I was told about banana. I found myself speed racing it on the groomers, as the reverse camber is very fast. I don't have any desire to ride the old standard camber again with the new reverse camber around to be honest. Lib Tech has served us well for years, and this is my 4th Lib Tech since around '04. Good price for a fangtastic, durable product. A lot of my buddies complain about weight of Lib Tech, and yes they are heavier than my other boards. Perhaps Lib tech could consider use of carbon composites? They do have "Park Pop", and it seems you really can't have that and still be very light. However, they are very strong, and will deal with aggresive riding, cliff hucking, etc. I'll always remember the time in thunder saddle at Kirkwood with my older dark series 161, which I loved when it came out. I was on a hairy "isthmus" which was super steep. As I inched out to look what was beneath me, I started slipping, and couldn't stop. There were full on rocks jutting out, and I did notch my dark series, and hit the back of my helmet-wearing head on a big rock on the 40 foot fall. I buried in the pow, but was totally O.K. I know from how hard my head hit the rock that if I wasn't wearing a helmet, I probably wouldn't be writing this, so those of you with a "hard head", don't let a concussion or worse ruin your whole deal and be the warning to go spend $60 or $80 bucks on a comfy helmet. They are so warm and comfy that I wear mine at night and in rough snowy weather even after riding. Peace. DD
I/m 6'1", 205 lbs and I ride a Rome Anthem...
I/m 6'1", 205 lbs and I ride a Rome Anthem 162 which I love as an all around board, but I feel like I need a pow board. I've been told that with the BTX you can stay at your normal board size and still float nicely but I'm wondering if I should man up to the 172 or just stick with a 165. Or is this even the board I want for pow specific riding?
I am guessing the 165 is going to be the one. I am 6', 175 and I ALMOST got the 165 but went 160 instead. It still floats well and the BTX is absolutely killer. The Mullet is a surprisingly good all-purpose board without too much setback, I have moved my stance all the way back for the powder we just got, it's fantastic.
The Mullet is a great board, you won't be disappointed.
I ride the 165 and absolutely love it! My friend went up to the 172 and loves it. He weighs about the same as you do. Either way you go, you're going to be happy. The 172 obviously floats slightly better and is slightly faster. Really though, I'm happy with the manueverability of my 165. This is the BEST board I've ever ridden, hands down. LOVE IT!!!!
Grip & Flex
I love this board, it is great for powder surfing, but it's not as grippy as i want it, even with the magnetraction, i think it's becouse of the banana tech, lib tech should make next year's model with the new C2 powerbanana, grip the hardpack AND flote the powder. they should also make it stiffer, it's soft like a park board, when i ride steep bumpy hardpack it's too jumpy and unstable.
Just wanted too aware people that this is not a big mountain board like rome notch like i thought, it's a soft powder board. i thougth it was a big mountain/powder board but maybe i just didn't read enough about it.
